36. (a) From Eq. 13-28, we see that 0/2EvGMR=in this problem. Using energy conservation, we have 12mvo2– GMm/RE= – GMm/rwhich yields r= 4RE/3. So the multiple of REis 4/3 or 1.33. (b) Using the equation in the textbook immediately preceding Eq. 13-28, we see that in this problem we have Ki= GMm/2RE, and the above manipulation (using energy
